Primary care is a healthcare given by the healthcare provider. This provider acts as first contact, principal point of continuing care for the patient within a health care system, and coordinates with other specialist care that the patient may need. Patients commonly get primary care from the primary care physician. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internist.
The World Health Organization attributes that, provision of essential primary care as an integral component of an inclusive primary health care strategy. Primary care involves widest scope of healthcare, including patients of all the ages, patients of all socioeconomic and geographic origins and the patients seeking to maintain optimal health, patients with all manner of acute and chronic physical, mental and social health issues, including multiple chronic diseases. Consequently, Primary care doctor must possess a wide breadth of knowledge in many areas. Continuity is a key characteristic of the primary care, as patients usually prefer to consult same practitioner for routine check-ups and preventive care, health education, and every time the patient requires an initial consultation about a new health problem.
Common chronic illnesses usually treated in primary care may include, hypertension, angina, diabetes, asthma, COPD, orthopaedic, depression and anxiety, back pain, arthritis or thyroid dysfunction. Primary care also includes many basic maternal and child health care services, such as family planning services and vaccinations.
In context of the global population ageing, with the increasing number of older adults at greater risk of chronic non-communicable diseases, demand for primary care services is expected to grow around the world, in both developed and developing countries. Different types of common diseases treated in primary care will be discussed in our scientific session.

Hospital medicine is a type of practice within internal medicine in which the clinical focus is caring for hospitalized patients.. Physicians whose primary professional focus is hospital medicine are called hospitalists.
The term hospitalist was first coined by Robert Wachter and Lee Goldman in a 1996.Physician who is engaged in clinical care, teaching, research, and/or leadership in the field of hospital medicine are called hospitalist.
Practitioners of hospital medicine include physicians (“hospitalists”) and non-physician providers who engage in clinical care, teaching, research, or leadership in the field of general hospital medicine. In addition to their core expertise managing the clinical problems of acutely ill, hospitalized patients, hospital medicine practitioners work to enhance the performance of hospitals and healthcare systems.

Infectious disease is the subspecialty of internal medicine dealing with diagnosis and the treatment of communicable diseases of all types, in all organs, and in patients of all ages. This specialty requires an understanding of themicrobiology, prevention, and management of disorders caused by viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections, including appropriate use ofantimicrobialagents, vaccines, and other immune biological agents; environmental, occupational, and host factors that predispose to infection; and basic principles ofepidemiologyand transmission of infection.

In medicine, a case report is a detailed report of the patient’s symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. Case reports may contain a demographic profile of the patient, but usually describe an unusual or novel occurrence. Some case reports also contain a literature review of others reported. Case reports do have genuinely useful roles in medical research and evidence-based medicine. In particular, they have facilitated recognition of new diseases, adverse effects of treatments.( example: recognition of the link. They can also help understand the clinical spectrum of the rare disease, as well as unusual presentations of common disease. The case report can detail many different aspects of patient’s medical situation (e.g. patient history, physical examination, diagnosis, psychosocial aspects, follow up).
- Cardiology case reports
- Oncology case reports

The cost-effective and secure use of information and communication technologies in support of the health and health-related fields including healthcare, health surveillance and health education, knowledge and research.
The reach of technological innovation continues to grow, changing all the industries as it evolves. In healthcare, the technology is increasingly playing a role in almost all processes, from the patient registration to data monitoring, from lab tests to the self-care tools. Devices like smartphones and tablets are starting to replace the conventional monitoring and recording systems, and people are now given option for undergoing a full consultation in the privacy of their own homes. Technological advancements in healthcare have contributed to services being taken out of the confines of hospital walls and integrating them with user-friendly, accessible devices. Topics of discussions are Biotechnology in Health Care, Telemedicine, M Health and Portal technology, Bioinformatics in Health Care System, EMR and Health Informatics and Clinical Patient Management System.

Geriatrics is the speciality in internal medicine. Geriatrics differs from the standard adult medicine because it focuses on unique needs of elderly person. Aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body, and during old age, the decline of various organ systems becomes manifest. Previous health issues and lifestyle choices produce a different constellation of the disease and symptoms in different people. The appearance of symptoms depends on remaining healthy reserves in the organs. Smokers, for example, consume their respiratory system reserve early and rapidly.

Disorders and disturbances of sleep are widespread and can have significant consequences for affected individuals as well as the economic and other consequences for society research studies have shown that, the leading cause (31%) of fatal-to-the-driver heavy truck crashes is fatigue related with drugs and alcohol as the number two cause (29%). Sleep deprivation. The lack of quality of sleep can have a negative impact on your energy, emotional balance, and the health. Whereas those who are suffering from regular sleeping problems often have an underlying medical or mental health problem, be it is minor or serious.

ICD has traditionally grouped diseases by aetiology and by affected organ system. For ICD¬11 the creation of a new chapter for multisystem disorders has been proposed. The following text sets out the rationale for and the possible scope of a multisystem disorders chapter. The concept of multisystem disorders is not new, however the meaning of “multisystem” as used in the literature is largely implicit and rarely defined explicitly except for case definitions of the CDC, and a mention in Webster’s Medical Dictionary. There is an important group of significant disorders which have varied manifestations and can affect so many organs that it is not possible to tie them to a single predominant organ system. Examples include Systemic lupus erythematosus, Dermatopolymyositis, Behçet disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson ’s disease, Polyarteritis nodosa, Sarcoidosis, Wegener granulomatosis, Mitochondrial disorders, Heredofamilial and developmental disorders.

Clinical pharmacy is a branch of Pharmacy where pharmacists provide patient care that optimizes the use of medication and promotes health, wellness, and disease prevention. Clinical pharmacists care for patients in all the health care settings but the clinical pharmacy movement initially began inside hospitals and clinics. Clinical pharmacists often collaborate with the physicians and other healthcare professionals. Clinical Pharmacist optimizes the outcomes of internal medicine patients by providing evidence-based, patient- centred medication therapy.

Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve the patient’s clinical health status. Telemedicine includes a growing variety of applications and the services using two-wa video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and the other forms of telecommunications technology. Starting out over 40 years ago with demonstrations of hospitals extending care to the patients in remote areas, use of telemedicine has spread rapidly and is now becoming integrated into the on-going operations of hospitals, specialty departments, home health agencies, private physician offices as well as consumer’s homes and workplaces. Products and services that are related to telemedicine are often part of a larger investment done by healthcare institutions in either information technology or the delivery of clinical care.
